Sporting Pathway Program
Students will also undertake six sport specific training sessions throughout the year. These sessions will be scheduled during school time to enable all students to engage with coaching opportunities in their chosen sport . All sport specific training sessions will be conducted by elite coaches who have been very successful, and in some cases represented their sport at the highest level.
There is a high accountability mechanism built into the program. All students must maintain a 70% or above ‘Attitude and Effort’ grade across all subjects to access the full offerings of the Sporting Pathway Program. Research shows that with the correct attitude and effort then students will achieve their best academic results. If a student drops below this expectation then consequences will be discussed.

Meet Our SPP Physiotherapist
My name is Lucy and I have been a Physiotherapist for 13 years. I Graduated with a Bachelor in Physiotherapy from the University of Birmingham in the UK and am currently studying pelvic floor physiotherapy at Melbourne University. I have mostly worked in private practice and sports settings treating a variety of general and sports related injuries. I am passionate about helping people return to the activities they enjoy and keeping them active! I have a particular interest in sports injuries, women’s health and adolescent/growth related injuries. I love to keep fit and active myself and if I am not in the gym, I am usually drinking chai and listening to Harry Potter!
